Marston Hefner was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic violence Sunday afternoon at Playboy Mansion in Pasadena. He was later freed after posting $20,000 bail.

But Sinclaire on Monday told E! Online that she will not press charges if Marston Hefner makes a public apology and agrees to get counseling. She made the comments while at Pasadena Police Department to obtain an emergency protective order against the 21-year-old Hefner.
"I want him to admit that he did hit me more than once. If he can do all of that and get help, I will never press charges. That's all that I want at this point. Playboy let me know this afternoon that he will be doing this, so I just hope they stick to their word."
